About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:

  1. Mary Ellen came to a birthday part here a few years ago.
    Played with strangers, no rehearsal, lots of improv/jam.
    She rocks on guitar, and has so much energy!

  2. Thanks for turning me on to Ace of Cups. I will pass it on through my connections to the world too… so amazing how this can grow now compared to when you started writing, when I started in the days of mimeograph machines well after you, and now, global in an instant. Fascinating life we get to live. Thanks for connecting me to yours. Brad Kittel aka Darby Lettick
